This fulfils my obligation to Texas
I'm not from these parts so rattlesnake is not my state reptile and bluebonnets are not my favorite wild flower. But for mrdreamjeans and those of you who might like it, here is your bluebonnet picture.
There is a tradition in Texas that parents take their baby out into a field and put them in a patch of bluebonnets and take a picture. There is also a tradition that rattlesnakes who come out in large numbers this time of year like high protective ground cover to lie in the morning sun and get warm. Darwin is always lurking around the corner.
